I used Soundforge to make fades, small edits, and patch-in an alternate
source over cuts and tape-flips. The patches are in the following spots:
- He's Gone, 0:00 > 0:07
- Smokestack, 7:54 > 7:56
- Drums, 4:33 > 6:28
- Space, 0:00 > 0:13
The first notes are slightly clipped on Bertha, West LA, and CC Rider.
(This was also present on the alternate AUD source, so they couldn't
be patched.) There's brief muffling of the left channel, 4:03 > 4:09
of Bro Easu, and 8:35 > 8:40 of Shakedown.
This is a really hot show, and a seriously in your face recording.

What Rhymes with Orange??
Nothing! Great setlist and decent performance, although--and it pains me to say this--Jerry voice is hurting and he muddles through several of the songs. If nothing else the He's Gone>Smokestack>Jam part was pretty hot so I'll give it a 4.

Yessss boys and girls. At last a great recording of a kick-ass show. The band is pissed off and he vibe is snarly, a typical NY state show akin to the Saratoga triple play of the same period. The Jack Straw will blow the hair off your scalp if listened to at high volume and the Shakedown is as funkedelic as it gets. The Weir growls in the Smokestacks are classic (and up front you thought that you had the best spot in the house before the showers began) and the jam out of the song is a real treat. I must say that the stunning fobs posted on the Archive have me checking daily for the updates.
